Colonial Style Home Designs

Take a stroll down any neighborhood in the Southeast, and you will come across a home that embraces the look of these colonial house plans. Two-story floor plans, front porches with pillars, large, welcoming windows and stately peaked roofs are the quintessential look of the colonial home. This design has been part of the American architectural scene since colonial times, hence its name, and continues to provide classic and comforting elegance to homeowners today. Donald A. Gardner Architects offers a number of house plans that colonial architecture lovers will appreciate.

Embrace History With Colonial House Plans

The colonial-style house plan, sometimes called a Georgian style, originates from 18th-century America. Colonial floor plans typically have two stories, a symmetrical front facade with an accented doorway, and evenly spaced windows on either side of it. Other common features of colonial home plans include elaborate front doors, often with decorative crown pediments, overhead fanlights and sidelights, and side porches or sunrooms. If you love this look, we have floor plans that will match it.
